Session Description

Fandoms and Teen Lit are all the rage nowadays, but how can you get your teens to connect at the
library? In this session, we'll tell you about how we've used Fandom Clubs and Teen Lit-based
programming to bring teens to the library! We'll cover what fandoms are, marketing your program to teens, connecting teens with your collection, and so much more!

Session Objective

  • Connecting teens with library resources
  • Bringing together teens in the library
  • Promoting library collections and services
